Where the spirit world & the real world meet

A Theatre Passe Muraille digital production

A young, Black trans man struggles to understand the ancestral messages saturating his dreams, after spending most of his life trying to suppress them. Ultimately, he finds the key is to integrate his heritage with his identity in order to realize his full potential and purpose. Critically-acclaimed, trans-identified artist, Samson Bonkeabantu Brown, traces a journey from fear to understanding.
